Mother Tongue is a new daytime spoken word event which aims to amplify mother artists and create space for audiences with caring roles.
There will performances from south west artists including poet Deanna Rodger, writer, actor and poet Micha Colombo, actor Tanya Morel and writer and former midwife Helen Sheppard.
Content will be adult-oriented but children will also be welcome. There will be toys and mats, and carers will be free to follow children around the space during the event.
All are welcome whether accompanying children or not. A key aim is to include those who cannot easily attend evening shows or who feel excluded when daytime shows do not support caring roles.
Full-price adult tickets cost £6 plus booking fee, children go free.
A pay what you can afford option is available for those for whom cost would be a barrier to attending.
